INDIA: The latest episode of Transcontinental Times’ 360° Live Talk Show featured Anklesh Mohabe, Electronics Engineer and Assistant Manager at Grind Master. His enthusiastic pursuit of engineering launches him as an aficionado of research and development.

Hardship defined Anklesh’s persona throughout his life’s ventures

Anklesh’s path is chronicled from a low-income family where his father worked as a labourer. His upbringing was based in a place devoid of opportunities for further education. Belonging to Ranera village, he completed his primary school and later propagated for junior college education in Hardoli.

In addition to his educational background, Anklesh emphasises his childhood hardships, stating, “I worked during the summer vacations so that I could buy books and assist my parents.” We were two brothers and one sister, so my priority was supporting my parents in our education.”

Briefing about the journey toward engineering, Anklesh reveals, “My family and the majority of the villagers didn’t know anything about the Science, Commerce, and Arts streams.” I was admitted to the arts stream despite my ignorance, but I later learned about the scope of engineering. At that point, I got demoralised. Some students recommended I continue my education in Tumsar, but that advice was unsuccessful.”

“Then, one of my relatives advised me that I could either pursue a polytechnic diploma or apply to law colleges using my 10th-grade score. So, the individual was my brother-in-law, Roshan Bhondekar’s father,” he continued.

Anklesh acknowledges that although joining engineering provided a pathway; it also had several obstacles along its way. The college was 20 kilometres away from his home, so he used to travel for a few days before settling in a nearby village.

“During the summer, I worked in a construction area even in the first year I performed some part-time jobs, to make money to sustain myself while I was studying in the college,” he added.

The role models and tribulations at work shaped Anklesh’s life

Anklesh expresses his gratitude to Transcontinental Times COO Niloy Chattaraj, remarking, “Due to some issues I got Typhoid, and then in the first year, I got ATKT where I believed my career is going to mess up. Even though it seemed like a dismal situation, I was nevertheless inspired by teachers like you, Sonekar Sir, and Pardi Sir.”

Upon his arrival in Aurangabad, Anklesh’s career venture commenced after completing the diploma. He only had a minimal amount of revenue to live on and found it difficult to acquire work in a suitable industry. 

While discussing the job, Anklesh asserts, “I started working at Videocon as an apprentice, where I earned some stipend for at least two to three months.” I wanted to succeed and survive, but I felt it was not a quality field. I was unable to locate any growth for the future that could lead me to my goals. I simply wanted to work in a profession where I might face more difficult obstacles.”

“I experienced times in my life after quitting work where I survived solely on bread and jam for seven days. I considered going back in this situation, but I knew I couldn’t because I lacked the money for flights. I borrowed money from someone and realised that if I returned home, it would take me two to three years to recoup the loan and that there would also be a significant gap in my work, which would be an even worse problem,” he revealed.

“I ran into a consultant and told him my entire tale; he invited me to stay at his place for a few days while I looked for employment. He then drove me to a company named Logical Solutions in Aurangabad. Abhay Deshmukh, the proprietor of the business where I was first introduced to him, served as my motivation,” he continued further.

Following all the hardship and ruckus marks the second chapter in Anklesh life, which began with his career journey in South Africa. “My nature is like the water. You mix me with any colour, and I’ll be that sort of colour,” he claims, defining how easy it was for him to fit in with the many work cultures. 

“Although the cultures were somewhat different, if you knew three magic words like “thank you,” “sorry,” and “please,” you can get by in any circumstance. We need to collaborate with others and keep our egos in check because if we do, we won’t have any opportunity of maturing in life,” he emphasised.

Anklesh underlines the important figures in his life, asserting, “My role models include Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, my father, and all of my gurus. In the 12th grade, Patel Sir was an additional mentor to me. I’ve learned from Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s life that education is the most important requirement for a successful life.”
